Welcome to this week’s writephoto prompt.
You can find all last week’s entries in the weekly round-up, which was published earlier today.
Throughout the week, I will feature as many of the responses here on the Daily Echo as time and space allows, usually in the order in which they are submitted. Please be aware that I tend to schedule reblogs in advance and these spaces fill quickly so an early submission is more likely to be reblogged.
All posts will be featured in the weekly round-up on Thursday, 30th January at 10am GMT, linking back to the original posts of contributors.

Submit your link by noon (GMT) Wednesday 29th January.

Thank you to everyone who took part, visited or reblogged the posts or left comments for their authors.
A new prompt will be published later today. As always, I…

How to write Haiku in English. And how to do a Pingback.
Remember to come back and visit the comments section during the week for your fellow poets entries!
The Guidelines are simple.
- Take the two words and write a Haiku. I use Haiku in Englishas my style, which is 5 syllables for the first line, 7 for the second, and 5 for the third, but you can use what you like. The link above has links within it to articles about how to write Haibun, Tanka, and even a new form I created called Freku. You can also do the 3/5/3 form if you like instead of the 5/7/5 that I usually use. Write, share, and have fun. For syllable help visit HowManySyllables.com. (You would be surprised at how…
